Did you realize there are an estimated 45.8 million people held in slavery today. And children represent an estimated 26% of all forced labor victims. India has the largest estimated number of people in slavery, between 10.7 and 12.7 million. As Men of Abundance, we have an obligation to at least bring awareness to this crime on humanity. Our feature guest today, John Rafferty has taken the mission on himself. Today we have that conversation. We also talk about his Premium College Admissions coaching business.
John Rafferty studied Philosophy at Boston College, under a full scholarship awarded through the Navy ROTC program. John's interest in advocating on behalf of victims of human trafficking was sparked when Mr.
Rafferty served as a Naval Officer in the Middle East. While there, he volunteered with non-profit organizations that sought justice for immigrant workers. His exposure to human trafficking influenced his decision to go to law school. Following his Naval service, Mr. Rafferty was awarded a full scholarship to Villanova Law School as a Public Interest Scholar.
Upon graduation, Mr. Rafferty moved to Ecuador for 10 months to conduct field research as a Fulbright Fellow. There he studied the scope of human trafficking in the country’s three largest cities. As an Assistant District Attorney in Chester County, John Rafferty prosecutes crimes including sex crimes, homicide, and human trafficking. He uses this position to serve as a voice for victims of violence and commercial exploitation.
In his free time, John is starting a live-debate series, getting ready to launch a podcast, and managing a premium college admissions coaching business for promising high school students.

Wally's Take Away:
- Slavery and human trafficking must be stopped. Individually we can make a small impact. Together we can do so much more.
- Any time you have a chance to get even the slightest unfair advantage, I suggest you take it. That is, as long as your able to add value to others.
